Hi All,


The purpose of this letter is to share not only my own but also South African National Parks (SANParks) extreme gratitude for MyPlanet Rhino Funds donation of the new Foxbat A22LS Aircraft as well as MyPlanet Rhino Funds joint funding venture of the Satara Hangar together with Stop Rhino Poaching.

 

The decentralised use of Ultralight aircraft based with Section Rangers in the KNP(Kruger National Park) has been a hugely successful initiative. The new Foxbat aircraft and Hangar at Satara under the management of the Maruia North Regional Ranger is now taking this effort to the next level.

 

The first 2 Operational flights with the Foxbat on the 19th and 20th October 2018 which were done in support of anti-poaching follow up operations in Tshokwane and Houtboschrand Section lead to the arrest of 4 rhino poachers and the recovery of 1 heavy calibre hunting rifle and a set of fresh rhino horns. I believe this success is indicative of the role and the benefit of MyPlanet Rhino Fund investment going forward.

 

It is an honour for SANParks to be associated with the initiative and efforts of MyPlanet Rhino Fund. Please also convey SANParks gratitude to the 34 000 MyPlanet card holders who support your initiative and in so doing have made a huge contribution to SANParks and KNP's capacity to combat the ongoing rhino poaching scourge.

 

Once again, many thanks and appreciation!!!
